We compare higher moments of baryon numbers measured at the RHIC heavy ion collision experiments with those by the lattice QCD calculations. We employ the canonical approach, in which we can access the real chemical potential regions avoiding the sign problem. In the lattice QCD simulations, we study several fits of the number density in the pure imaginary chemical potential, and analyze how these fits affects behaviors at the real chemical potential. In the energy regions between $\sqrt{s}_{NN…

Holographic anisotropic model for light quarks with confinement-deconfinement phase transition

We present a five-dimensional anisotropic holographic model for light quarks supported by Einstein-dilaton-two-Maxwell action. This model generalizing isotropic holographic model with light quarks is

Use of the canonical approach in effective models of QCD

We clarify regions where the canonical approach works well at the finite temperature and density in the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio (NJL) and Polyakov-NJL (PNJL) models. The canonical approach is a useful

Lee-Yang zeros in lattice QCD at finite baryon density from canonical approach

We report Lee-Yang zeros behavior at finite temperature and density using the canonical approach in lattice QCD. The quark number densities are calculated at the pure imaginary chemical potential in

Lattice QCD at finite baryon density using analytic continuation

We simulate lattice QCD with two flavors of Wilson fermions at imaginary baryon chemical potential. Results for the baryon number density computed in the confining and deconfining phases at imaginary

Canonical approach -- Investigation of finite density QCD phase transition

The study of QCD phase diagram is very interesting, but we have never understood it well. This is because we face a problem at finite density in QCD. The problem is called sign problem. It causes a



Probing the QCD critical point by higher moments of net-proton multiplicity distributions at STAR

Higher moments (kurtosis (κ), skewness (S) and variance (σ2)) of multiplicity distributions are sensitive to the correlation length and can be used to search for the QCD critical point. The moment

Comparison of chemical freeze-out criteria in heavy-ion collisions

One of the most remarkable results to emerge from heavy-ion collisions over the past two decades is the striking regularity shown by particle yields at all energies. This has led to several very

Probing the QCD chiral cross-over transition in heavy ion collisions

We argue that by measuring higher moments of the net proton number fluctuations in heavy ion collisions (HIC) one can probe the QCD chiral cross-over transition experimentally. We discuss the

Equation of State and Heavy-Quark Free Energy at Finite Temperature and Density in Two Flavor Lattice QCD with Wilson Quark Action

We study the equation of state at finite temperature and density in two-flavor QCD with the renormalization group improved gluon action and the clover-improved Wilson quark action on a 16{sup 3}x4

New approach to canonical partition functions computation in $N_f=2$ lattice QCD at finite baryon density

We propose and test a new approach to computation of canonical partition functions in lattice QCD at finite density. We suggest a few steps procedure. We first compute numerically the quark number

Higher order quark number fluctuations via imaginary chemical potentials in $N_f=2+1$ QCD

We discuss analytic continuation as a tool to extract the cumulants of the quark number fluctuations in the strongly interacting medium from lattice QCD simulations at imaginary chemical potentials.

Quark number susceptibilities and equation of state at finite chemical potential in staggered QCD with Nt=8

We report the measurement of quark number susceptibilities (QNS) and their temperature dependence from simulations of QCD with two flavours of light dynamical staggered quarks at finite temperature

Functional renormalization group analysis of the soft mode at the QCD critical point

We make an intensive investigation of the soft mode at the quantum chromodynamics (QCD) critical point on the basis of the functional renormalization group (FRG) method in the local potential
